this is my first guitar build and i have gottento the stage were i build the neck and i need plans for a gibson like set neck

Well Gibson's set necks are tilted back for increased sustain, and set necks are glued on. You'll need a really strong glue and something to keep the body and neck bound together.

huh? how can you 'just change to a bolt on'?

Have you built any thing yet or are you still designing it?

the dimensions of the neck depend on the bridge and nut you are using anyway.

The tilt is for the Tune O-Matic bridge, not sustain.

But regular titebond should do the trick, the stuff in red.

And a lot of guitar building is modifying plans to fit your needs. I mean, what would a custom guitar be if it looked exactly like a production?

I have a rough cut body but thats it and ive left alot of room on the neck pockect area for any changes
so i just need plans for the neck itself (length widhts fret distances etc.)
